Author Eric Metaxas is brilliant, funny and …deep. His speech at the National Prayer Breakfast 2012 in front of Obama is a MUST SEE. Metaxas was born in Queens, New York City, he grew up in Connecticut and graduated from Yale University, where he edited the Yale Record, the nation’s oldest college humor magazine. And, he believes in Jesus. Eric interviewed me today for his new radio show, The Eric Metaxas Show. We talked about my recent cancer diagnosis and how I got on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show, 20 times, back in 1983. Eric Metaxas is the new Johnny Carson. He has class. Will somebody please put him on TV asap?
Please pardon the fact that I think I had a piece of sushi rice stuck in my teeth during the song above. We were at the NRB in Nashville chatting and I hadn’t prepared for “camera.” The song came to me from Psalm 43:5, the verse God put a spotlight on while I was Bible reading in the Vanderbilt Breast Clinic awaiting my double mastectomy.
